Goth Fairy Shimmer Bar from Lush

This precious little formation of melt is called the Goth Fairy Shimmer Bar, it was first released for Halloween 2016 and must have made quite the impression as it has made a return for Halloween 2017 too. There were so many brand new products last year that unfortunately some of the smaller less in-your-face products such as the Goth Fairy were overshadowed. This is why I had left reviewing it for so long. Now I have seen that it has made a return for a second year I guess I should spill how I feel about it…

Lush shimmer bars are basically massage bars but with shimmer. A bit like a body moisturiser you apply it to your arm legs and possibly chest, working it into your skin just as you would a massage bar. I have also heard of some using it on their face as highlighter. The Goth Fairies purpose is to adorn your skin in shimmer as well as decorate it with a light and fruity scent.

The Goth Fairy shimmer bar shares its scent with the discontinued and very much missed, Space Girl bath bomb. It glides on to your skin effortlessly and leaves your skin  looking and feeling well nourished with a subtle sparkle which is perfect for a night out.

The only negative I have on the Goth Fairy is its small size, I remember being presented with it last year and thinking, ‘oh… is that all of it?’. A little however does go a long way and it is a product you do use sparingly, that is unless you really do want to look like a real life fairy!

Overall I do like this product, it works brilliantly on your arms and legs and I feel it gives the illusion of your limbs being thinner and longer. This is obviously not something everyone will want out of it but for this purpose I will be taking a Goth Fairy with me on my honeymoon at the end of the month. Originally I thought that the Goth Fairy shimmer bar was a bit of a novelty product but after using it I can see myself always reaching for it for a night out. It wouldn’t be an everyday product for me but on the rare occasion that I do go out, I would definitely use it.

Fairy Ring Soap from Lush

At the Lush Creative Showcase I picked up the Mistletoe bath bomb and recognised the scent straight away. I squealed at one of the sales assistants, ‘SILKY UNDERWEAR!’ my boyfriend didn’t have a clue as to what I meant but thankfully the sales assistant did.

One of my favourite things about Lush is that you can enjoy their carefully crafted scents in lots of different formats.

The release of the Mistletoe bath bomb has led me into falling back in love with the silky underwear scent. When I see that the Lush Kitchen menu had Fairy Ring Soap, which shares the same scent too, I couldn’t stop myself from ordering a block.

The Fairy Ring soap contains a beautiful combination of yummy ingredients, jasmine, ylang ylang and vetivert oil. Mixed together they give the soap a sweet and musky scent that I can never get enough of.

There aren’t as many products in the silky underwear scent family as I’d like. I hope that the Lush Kitchen bring some of the retro products back soon and that in time its family will grow.

All of the Lush soaps that I have tried seem to last forever. When it came down to using the Fairy Ring soap I found that it lathered up very quickly and left my skin in a surprisingly soft and hydrated condition, this didn’t last very long though, my skin dried up after about half and hour.

This was easily fixed by slapping on some body lotion. I just wish that Lush had a body lotion with the same scent, using something with a different scent sometimes works really well, I however don’t always want to mix scents.

I’d literally buy several thousand litres of it if it was made into a body lotion. There are so many products that I wish had body lotion equivalents but this scent in particular I’d be very interested in.
